SUMO STEW 23 @ The Brooklyn Brewery

Event Navigation

From our organizers:

Monday, November 12th, 8-11PM @ Brooklyn Brewery (79 N 11th St, Brooklyn, NY 11249)

Inspired by a trip to Japan, photographer Michael Harlan Turkell (harlanturk.com) returned to New York City with aspirations of importing this ancient sport and teamed up with Harry Rosenblum, owner of The Brooklyn Kitchen (thebrooklynkitchen.com), a center for culinary education. The two created a series based around plentiful bowls of chankonabe, the “sumo stew” wrestlers prepare and eat before matches. The hearty broth is loaded with fortifying protein and vegetables. This, paired with the live streamed bimonthly grand tournaments, makes for a lively event, bringing hungry first time and long-standing sumo fans ringside.

This round of SUMO STEW will feature a seasonal chicken chankonabe from Momo Chicken Shack, momosushishack.com
